A former Johnston man has been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his common-law wife. Donald Greenslit was also sentenced to the maximum allowed by law for several lesser crimes.
A jury found Donald Greenslit guilty of murder, following a nine-day trial in March. Prosecutors argued that on January 22, 2012 Greenslit murdered Stacie Dorego, his common-law wife. He tried to hide the crime by dismembering the her body and burning it in a fireplace in the basement. The victim’s two children were present at the time of the murder.
